So its a Fad going though its stages, unless it strikes a Key note against a religion or stops peoples freedoms i don't think its going to end. and really most treads aim at the funny cute stuff. I mean hello kitty was around for god knows how long.. still is too. .hate the stuff.. you should fight Ponys with Hello kitty's.. theirs war right there! and don't worry that shirt has already hit Corporation's on casual Fridays i see a whole high corporate building wearing my little pony shirts.. yet day before strict business types. and i see football players wearing them too. So its been going on for a while, and the reason it that show reaches people on many levels not just the plain cartoon look to it. Hell i watched a few episodes cuz my GF wanted me to.. was actually entertaining. thought it was weird at first though. you just learn to accept things and move on with yourself how you like to, but don't try to ruin things for others it counter productive let them have there shine with out interruption and it fades faster.
